Here a pin, there a pin

I can hear someone saying - Where have you been young lady?  I have had my nose to the grind stone.  As Vice President of one of the guilds,  the President and I wanted to give each of our members a little present at our Christmas party.   She made ornaments and I made pincushions. And some members got potholders. 



Funny - how much we think alike - We both made a spool for one of the members.  :)  


I used Wooly flannel for the background and then did wool applique and did the blanket stitch by hand on them. Then I filled them with walnut shells and polyfil.  



 

On one hand 20 pincushions may not seem like a lot to show for a little over a week, but considering that a lot of it was hand work I'm feeling pretty good about it.  

Today I want to start quilting the Scavenger quilt. I know I said I was going to do that a week ago - but that got interrupted - Today - I really really want to start on that.  I'll let you know. 
Blessings - Lynn
